I am afraid Baby is trying to tell me that he only wants one nap a day. Oh my goodness! Whatever will I do with just one nap of free time to do chores and blog???? Right now, he's supposed to be napping, and instead, he's chattering and sucking his thumb quite loudly. I don't believe he's going to be napping this afternoon, since he's been lying down for over 45 minutes already. He's too young for just one nap, I don't understand. The book I've used as my sleep bible for him pretty much since he was born says if he plays instead of sleep then I know he's ready for just one nap, but he's definitely not playing. He's threatening to cry. I don't know what to make of this. He's been taking both naps really without fail for many, many weeks now, after a little blip or two here and there.
It's an awfully gross rainy day outside, which makes me feel awfully sleepy. Doesn't it make Baby sleepy too? I hate these kinds of days, when it's rainy and Baby is cranky. We're stuck in the house, and both of us seem to get a bit tense about it. I hate taking him out in the rain - not that I believe that old-fashioned notion that you can catch a cold by being out in the rain, but because it's rather chilly out, and I'd rather Baby not be freezing because he's wet and it's cold.
Cross your fingers for me that Baby will fall asleep. I'm still hoping. He's got another 45 minutes or so before he would normally wake up from his nap.
